Never look down on anybody

Saturday, March 30, 2013



“Never look down on anybody unless you're helping them up.”
~~ Jesse Jackson

Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines HUMANE as
marked by compassion, sympathy, or consideration for humans or animals

“The ultimate measure of a man is
not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience,
but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
--Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Radical changes in world politics leave America
with a heightened responsibility to be, for the world,
an example of a genuinely free, democratic, just
and humane society.”
~~ Pope John Paul II

“…while the conversation about poverty in America
has been going on for decades, it seems to be taking on a new urgency,
for women and children struggling to survive
(more than half of poor families are headed by single moms),
for formerly middle-class families and individuals who
have slipped down the ladder,
for young people starting out under the weight of crushing student debt.”

    Thank you for the reminder at a time when many of us forget that there is a larger meaning behind what we're celebrating this weekend than eggs and chocolate. For those who believe in Jesus, I believe he would appreciate more of us thinking about these things. Hope you had a good weekend yourself, and thank you for the beautiful quotes!

    It's not a question of "them" and "us" - we need to see it all as "us".

    I have known and helped a number of homeless people. The number seem to be increasing as the economy has suffered. I am not homeless, but do have compassion and help as I can.

May you enjoy your Easter.
